September 2018 FFP letter
Goodness, it has been a long time since I put fingers to keyboard to write to you all. But in my own defense I have been completing my latest book “Rise & Shine” in which the main character, Truman, has psoriasis.
It has been a very interesting process. Sometimes magical. Sometimes frustrating. Sometimes just plain hard work. But I’m happy with the results. My readers (3 women) gave me helpful feedback which only improved the book. And who were kind and generous with their suggestions.
And this month marks my fourth year psoriasis free (except for that little glitch when I realized that it wasn’t only dairy but also foods/beverages “fortified” with calcium that caused flare-ups. And, of course, I do get the odd little spot because I experiment with small amounts of dairy, so I increase my D3 dosage. It’s risky but I want to see just how much I can control this disease. So far, so good.
Just in case I haven’t given you this information—you might want to Google Dr. Cicero Coimbra. He’s the doctor in Brazil who did the hospital study with patients who had either psoriasis or vitiligo. There’s a site that is mainly about MS but it has all kinds of good information such as the list of doctors worldwide who have trained with Dr. Coimbra.
He uses very high dosage D3 with his patients and has done so for over 20 years. Not just with psoriasis but with all manner of autoimmune diseases and, based on the testimonials, has had quite amazing results. Anyway, you might want to check him out.
Also, we do have a Facebook page by the same name…Freedom From Psoriasis. I’m a little better about posting there but I do get waylaid and forget how much time has flown by since the last post—part of the joys of getting old, I think.
Apparently today is Gratitude Day and I must admit to having much to be grateful for, not the least of which is the joy of having clear skin. And this past summer was particularly spectacular. And Lucky is healthy and as weird and funny as ever. And the book is finally finished. And I rarely suffer from depression any more. And I’m alive which, according to a TedX speaker, the odds of being born are 1 in 400,000,000,000 which is one in four trillion!!! So, hurrah! Thank you Mom and Dad, wherever you may now be.
And so I send my best wishes to all of you in the hope that our protocol has helped in some way to make your life better. Don’t forget that we love to hear from you in the form of testimonials and to see photos of your good results.
Dakota and Lucky
